So my segment last week seemed to be a hit with you all! Some of you even came out of the woodwork and commented for the first time. I wish everyone who read my blog would comment- I mean, I would love to know who all of you hiding behind the screen are!! I really would!
I truly enjoy doing these segments because first: I love clothes. Second: I have so many tips and no one to share them with!! I will with my girls when they get older, but for now- I love sharing them with you all!!!
Also- as many have you noticed- I dont smile in these pictures.
The truth is, they are taken right before my morning coffee and like 10 minutes after I wake up, so a smile would be forced- because dude I am TIRED.
Nude Tank: The Limited
Black Pants, Harem: Zara
Multi Colored Necklace: F21
Tip: Cropped shirts are fashionable right now, but obviously the do not work for everyone! So, In order to make this work, I paired it with a tank underneath which was longer. The black pants were a touch baggy (harem) at the top, so they worked well to hide a pooch.
Shirt/Black Patterned: F21
Light Jean leggings: H&M
Tip: I tried to wear the black shirt by itself, but it was loose-fitting and did nothing for my figure. I decided to pair it with a vest and a belt, again, to break up the body and make the waist appear smaller.
Tip: The top was a bit loose, so I wore it with Jeans- both solid colors and plain, so I threw on a large necklace
Animal Print Tunic:H&M
Cardigan/ Light Green: Old Navy
Black Leggings: H&M
Tip: The Tunic is called a “dress” at H&M, but only in a world for people under 3 feet apparently. I paired it with leggings, and added a punch of color with the cardigan. The cardigan was long, so it covered my tush.
Tank : F21
Cardigan: J crew
Belt: Anne Says
Tip: The belt adds dimension to he outfit- again, breaking it up to the eye. The cardigan hides the love handles on the side. If I weren’t wearing a cardigan, you would be able to see the them predominantly.
It’s really about hiding what you dont like….Again for me it’s my belly (which I hide with loose-fitting tops that I cinch at the top of the waist) and arms- which I hide with cardigans or shirts with sleeves.
I would love to answer your questions!
